Hi, I've just released Linux 18.104.22.168. It fixes a number of minor security issues, mainly information leaks from the kernel stack on some 64-bit architectures, or possible NULL derefs and crashes in some less commonly used protocols (eg: econet, x25, irda). A build issue introduced in 22.214.171.124 when atm/clip was configured to build as a module was fixed. An ext3 quota bug causing occasional random panics was fixed, thanks to a report from Sascha Umlang who also made lots of efforts to get a debuggable capture of the issue and test the backport for two months. Last, various MIPS-related fixes provided by Ralf Baechle were merged. The new 2.4 EOL is now pushed to end of 2011.
